Thomas Warwick

I’m a Chemistry graduate who defected to the world of biosciences to complete a Ph.D. in Structural Biology. My expertise lies in the structural analysis of chemicals, membrane proteins, and protein/DNA complexes via X-ray crystallography. I currently work as a Technical Specialist in Biophysics at Nottingham Trent University. My antidote to practical science is to be outside as much as possible, usually cycling, camping, and drinking tea.
